Queen Bavmorda speaks with Sorsha multiple times, though usually to reprimand her.
Also part of the climax is a battle between Fin Razel and Bavmorda.

Willow passes with flying colors. Let me add a few more things: Sorsha is equally strong and just as good a fighter as Madmartigan. Elora Danan is the prophesied princess one who will one day destroy evil, also even though she is a baby, she shows no fear. The fairy queen rules all of the fairies and brownies. (Brownies being the male, wingless, non-glowing clumsily fighting versions of the fairies.) Basically, all of the magic in the land, good and evil is controlled by females. Billy Barty's wizard character is really nothing more than a magician. The male protagonists prime quest is to make sure a female can survive and come into power.

I love this movie! I am fascinated by the fact that this movie passes the test because of the choice to make the baby of the prophecy female. All of Bavmorda and Sorsha's conversations revolve around finding the baby. If Elora Danin had been a boy, this movie would have failed the test! Fin Razel and Sorsha should have had a conversation, that would have gotten the female interactive juices going.
